BARA: Houses of two tribesmen, Yar Gul and Akhtar, were destroyed by security forces in Khartamang Khwar area of Bara Tehsil, Khyber Agency, an official of the political administration said.

“Houses of the tribesmen were razed to the ground for establishing contacts with militants from Lashker-e-Islam,” the official said.

In a separate incident, two men were kidnapped and taken to an undisclosed location in their passenger vans by Lashker-e-Islam in Gula Khan Bagh area, officials said.

Four men released

Around five days ago four other men were kidnapped by LI along with their vehicles, but they have now been released.

Sifat Khan, who was driving  the vehicle, said: “We were kidnapped on our way to Akkakhel and taken to an unknown location.”

Lashker-e-Islam, led by Mangal Bagh is a militant group working in this area since 2006. The militant group is involved in kidnappings from not only Khyber Agency but Peshawar as well.
